AFTER IMAGES leaked online overnight, McLaren has revealed its 570S Coupe ahead of its debut at the New York Motor Show in April. The first model in the brand’s Sports Series range, the 570S Coupe is aimed at opening up the McLaren brand to a wider audience.
As it’s name suggests, the 570S Coupe gets a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 that produces 570PS, or 419kW and 600Nm of torque. Power is delivered through a seven-speed SSG transmission, and transferred to the road through the rear wheels. This power is brought under control with standard-fit carbon ceramic brakes, fitted behind a newly designed range of forged alloy wheel options with P Zero Corsa tyres as standard from McLaren technical partner, Pirelli – 225/35/R19 on the front and 285/35/R20 on the rear.
The 570S accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds, while 200 km/h is reached in just 9.5 seconds with the pace not letting up till the car reaches a top speed of 328 km/h.
The 570S Coupe gets a unique carbon-fibre MonoCell II chassis designed with a focus on day-to-day usability, offering improved ingress and egress from the cabin. McLaren says the structure is incredibly strong and stiff yet weighs less than 80kg. This lightweight structure, and the use of aluminium body panels, contributes to a dry weight of 1313kg
McLaren says, “The Coupé is the first bodystyle to be shown in the Sports Series, highlighting the latest evolution of the McLaren design philosophy. The ‘shrinkwrapped’, aerodynamically-optimised form will be seen in public for the first time at the 115th New York International Auto Show. The McLaren design team has created a shape of beauty highlighted by details such as the rear flying buttresses that increase downforce as well as adding grace, and complex door tendons that direct additional air to cool the mid-mounted V8 engine”.
